    wink2 1955 Yugo M49 8mm Ammo

    Hello Fellow Shooters, I just got a 900 round sealed tin in a sealed crate for 150.00 total from a buddy. What does the M49 mean ????, The 1952 thru 1954 Yugo 8mm Ammo does NOT say M49 on the boxes or containers.
    Please Help with more Info on these different 8mm Yugo ammo ??, Thanks Much

    17 cents a round is a steal if it shoots good.

    Be sure to wear glasses when shooting. That year had issues with split cases while shooting. My Mauser handled them well, but it spit back at me.
    Next SHOOT?

    Good stuff if you have an extra power mainspring (22-24 lbs). Some of the primers are hard/ deep.

    I believe M49 refers to the specific parameters of the load the Yugos adopted in 1949. It is different from the earlier M38 load, though I know not how. Yugo ammo was designated M49 into the 80s and perhaps later.

    Just burned through a can of this same stuff. Used it in a WWII 98k, a Yugo M-48, and an Persian Mauser. No problems of any kind, and no misfires. It burns very clean. I bought more.
